Just what we need, more forced 'diversity.' How about we judge people by the merits, not their diverseness?

I didn't do drama in school, but we did do opera naked. The good thing about singing opera in the nude, when you hit the high notes, you really see it in the genitals.

If you want to close the achievement gap something must be done about the perception in the American-Afrikan community about education. It is not valued to the degree it should be. Blacks trying to do well for themselves are labeled as "trying to be white".

The only thing that Phil and Maltomon are obsessed about is to bring back nude swimming classes, since it's the only subject they are interested in.

Zuiko, when will Maltaphil bring back nude swimming classes in school? "Soon"? Or just "any day now"?

You see blacks have been "educated" for years without any improvement.

So the education system has given up and are now making non-black kids dumber. That is their solution to narrowing the achievement gap between blacks and non-blacks. A teacher in a St Paul public tells the story of Hmong parents figuring out the blue city public schools are worthless. So these Hmong parents are sending their kids to 3rd ring public schools.

Hmong WILL fit right in to the American way of life and have already surpassed blacks economically.

Professor : With an Engineering degree, you can earn upwards of $90,000 a year.

Student : Really?

Professor : Yes.

Worker : You want to pay me $45,000 a year with Computer Engineering degree and 10 years of work experience?

Employer : That is all we can pay you. That is the market rate.

Student : Why go to college then?

Teacher : I think to High School is enough education.

Government : The average salary of the American worker is $48,000 a year.

Student : The professor is stretching the truth. You don't make that much more with Engineering, Law, Medical, Business degree.
